After the arrest of the CBN Governor by the DSS, the former adviser to the former President Goodluck Ebere Jonathan, Mr Reno Omokri React to the arrest, condemning the act.

He shared this on his Twitter page as he quote,

“The suspension of Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, by President Bola Tinubu is not in good taste. It appears to be a vindictive act, to punish Mr Emefiele for the patriotic Naira redesign policy, which was meant, among other things, to reduce the impact of money on the #NigerianElections2023. President Tinubu started well. Indeed, I have had cause to praise him. But he should not mar the progress he has made by this act of seeming vengeance. The country needs unity and stability after a fractious election. Now is the time for appeasement, not punishment. It is hoped that the President will reconsider his actions for the nation’s greater good.”

Reno advised Mr President to reconsider his action and free the CBN Governor, because the country needs unity and stability after a fragmented election. He also said now is the time for appeasement and not punishment.
